Has anyone else noticed the sudden impulse to rename buildings, boardwalks and schools nowadays? Wonder why? What is really the subliminal message being sent out here? Soon time? All is mine?
Could it be… those were our charges and deserve more mention? Which ever way is up, it seems facetious and self serving for the placement of a new frets oninto old guitars, that have become legacies in their own right, when remembered as they were….true hallowed institutions. A new boardwalk maybe, but to rename a school like Harrison’s College to something else, seems extenuating even disingenuous. A Queens College renamed to a new fame or other dame is an exercise in farrago.
Why distort history and challenge past remembrance?
One thing for sure, let us hope that there be no more given the oncoming…..nor a ping pong game of ‘good for the goose, good for the gander.’ School days are happy happy days and all effigies and entails should be left as is, to be remembered. Question begs, why curtain schools, as if some were cherry picked by fancy or location?
